He's crawling!

It's official Finlay has become a crawler today. He has been on the brink of crawling for about a week or so. He has come close a few times but has been thwarted by his older brother who thinks he should just had Finlay his toy LOL. Today I put my ring on the floor to get his attention and he was all about getting to the shiny pretty. It was an awkward crawl but he got to what he wanted. He thought he was big stuff then. I guess it will be soon time to put up the baby gates and cover all chords and outlets. Soon enough he is going to be covering the room.

He had another first today too. He has started clapping for himself. It was so cute he was sitting playing with his toys and every time it played music he would clap and give me a silly smile. He can be such a goofball sometimes.

Finlay has started holding his own bottles too. He's been on and off with it for the last few weeks. He seems to just enjoy having someone else hold his bottle so he can snuggle or grab for things. He is a little stinker in the grabbing department. I call him "Grabby Gus" all the time. He thinks it's funny.

He is getting to be such a big boy having all these firsts at the age of 8 months old. He is growing up so fast. I keep telling him that he doesn't have to be in a hurry to take his time I'll be OK with that but apparently he doesn't want to take his time.

I need to post some pictures of Finlay on here but I can't move the pics from my phone to my computer for some reason. I will have to figure out another way to post those pictures of him.
